This is our production assistant, Josh Guffey, who road ahead of Matt as the support bike. That bag slung over the back of his bike is weighed down with batteries and fresh tapes to hand off to Matt. It was not a light load. Josh road 20 miles.
This is the back of another Jr. Camera Operator, Parker Whittemore, as he shoots the hundreds of people prepping to go on the 69-mile race.
Could you please discuss in your next blog when the ladies do the side solo interviews or "confessionals" ... I'm not sure what you would call them in your business, but when the women talk to alone to the camera to sort of sum up what happened ...
is it done right then after each episode is taped for the week ...
is it done after quite a few episodes are taped ...
or is it done right before the episode airs?
Many of us who watch together each week have been wondering this for awhile.
Thank you for answering this one for us if you would please.
The first thing i wondered when i saw the episode was how in the hel did you pull it off . i m glad i got to see how you tape the bike a thon. you should do those type blog (insider point of view) for every show.
Love your blog! Keep giving us the inside info because it helps me understand the real housewives from your very honest point of view.
Wonder if you will dare to post this/answer this . . .
So saw someone noted that Kim & Kyle's outfits in the "before" the blind date facial scene and the "after" blind date lunch are exactly the same. So a little rearrangement by the editors or is this so called reality not so real and scripted like many people seem to suspect?
This blog is awesome! I'm so glad you are posting to give us an inside look .. it also amazes me how much goes into a 1 hour show - seems so simple from our end sitting on the couch - we don't realize how difficult it is to pull all of this off! Thanks again for the inside look!
Dave, I find myself waiting for your blog to come out each week. You have me hooked! Love your writing and insight. Thank you
Thanks for posting a blog! This is the first of the housewives show I watched. It should be called the UNREAL Housewives of Beverly Hills. I am just blown away with how these people live. Anyone who pays 50,000 for a 4 year old party or considers themselves "green" because they fly commericial is NOT real. You need to cast a 'REAL Housewives" show.
That was the smallest, cleanest DMV I've ever seen. But come on. Tell the truth. That guy who tried his lines on Lisa . . . the only open chair near her just happens to be filled by an aging wreck from Central Casting?!
BH Producers- So glad you have a blog! It's so fun to hear it from your perspective and hear how things work behind-the-scenes! Great job and keep up the hard work! I'm such a big fan of the show!!!
I love all the housewives, I love the blogs from the producers more! It was cool of you all to actually let us see what happens behind the scenes of our favorite reality shows. Hopefully Bravo will do a full hour of behind the scenes footage of the crew and what you have to go through to shoot the housewives. I would definitely watch!
I love reading your blog, it's a great insight into the makings of this show and when you're upfront about the production and staged aspects of the episodes, it makes the other parts seem more realistic. I've started reading the blogs first before watching the episodes. Knowing the back-stories and the womens' views before watching makes it a little more interesting!
Just love you blogging. It is so enlightening. I have always liked the behind the scene thing but this is special. You know just exactly what I want to hear about. Thanks for that and I'll say again,,,best housewives show going. I quickly got into each and everyone of them.
I love reading your blogs but even more I loved seeing the behind the scene pictures. I think you should post more photos in your future blogs. It paints a great picture to see the crew hard at work and to see their efforts not go unnoticed.
Wow, thanks for sharing the photos! Just ingenius how this was filmed, and so fun to watch. Love this show!
I absolutely love your blogs the most. They are very honest as well as informative. Sometimes, we as viewers, need a few extra pieces of the puzzle that make up a show. Thank you for providing them!!!! As far as Camille is concerned, I personally cannot wrap my head around her because she makes it so difficult to relate to her or feel sorry for her. I just don't think she meshes well with the rest of the group!! The members of your crew are to be commended for their fabulous job well done!!
I have to give kudos to the RHOBH's as this is my favorite of all the housewives! The editing is great and so is the filming! I loved seeing the hassles of a California DMV office and watching a total stranger show up to Kim's house (single Gary). Good job and keep it up!
